Spectacular cover of The Who's "A Quick One While He's Away" performed by My Morning Jacket and Eddie Vedder:

Part 1

Part 2

Such an elaborate song with a million parts and intricate harmonies. In case you haven't heard the legend, apparently:
The Who wanted to feature a cellist in one section of “A Quick One, While He’s Away,” but the cost proved prohibitive. Therefore, in lieu of the actual instrument, the band simply chanted “cello cello cello cello!” in the spot where the instrument would have appeared.

This is the song in Rushmore when Max has just put bees into Bill Murray's hotel room and is coming out of the elevator. A total jam.

The My Morning Jacket guys nail the vocals and music so accurately...a total achievement.


Thanks Pete
